A 35-YEAR-OLD man involved in a siege at a house in Huddersfield earlier this year has admitted possessing a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and affray.
Terence Roberts had been due to stand trial at Bradford Crown Court today.
But he has now entered guilty pleas to the two charges which relate to an incident at his home at Brownroyd Avenue, Rawthorpe, on May 4.
Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to the scene at about 7.30pm that night after reports that a man was trying to harm himself.
After a stand-off lasting several hours he was eventually arrested just after midnight.
Roberts admitted having a ball-bearing pistol in his possession at the time of the incident.
His barrister Fiona Dix-Dyer asked for his sentence to be adjourned so that various reports could be prepared.
She told Recorder Bryan Cox that her client had been receiving psychiatric treatment for some time.
Recorder Cox granted Roberts bail.
He is due to return to the Crown Court for sentence on January 28.
